Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday!

Good morning!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and if you were celebrating Mother's Day yesterday I hope you had lots of fun! I had a lovely time and both my kiddos bought me wonderful gifts..... and I was treated to breakfast in bed and a homecooked meal in the evening..... perfect!!

Whilst the family was hard at work making my day as relaxing as possible, I spent some quiet time in my craft room and created this card. I thought I'd use this sweet pink butterfly as it is quite metallic which fits in with the new Magnolia Down Under Challenge.

As you can see the card has quite a nice 3-d element with all the flowers I added. The papers are Prima and the fence is Magnolia DooHickey. I used another of the new Magnolia images and a gorgeous background from the new range too...... the sentiment is from the last release.

I'm also entering the following challenges:

Crafty Calendar - April Showers Bring Forth May Flowers

Allsorts - Blooming Blossoms

Saturday Challenge - Butterflies

The Corrosive Challenge - Pastel Colours

Addicted To Stamps - Happy Birthday

Paper Sundaes - Spring Blossoms

Hope your week is a good one..... thanks so much for stopping by today ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
